Bert Reese (1851-1926) was a mind reader known for is skill with Billet Reading and conveyed to his "sitters that he had X-ray vision, which enabled him to discern written messages.
Reese emigrated to New York in 1861 and changed the spelling of his name to Reese. He became fascinated by a billet reader called Charles H. Foster, The Salem Seer, and eventually became his pupil.
He reputation grew and psychic researchers, including Baron von Schrenck Notzing, hailed him as a remarkable clairvoyant, psychic, and message giver. He never declared himself to be a spiritualist, nor did he profess to have supernatural powers.
